What's eating my peppers

15 June 2017 - 12:49 PM

It looks like some kind of pest but I don't see anything on the leaves, just slight browning and curling of the top. If anyone recognise this, please advise what to do to remedy. 








I've ordered some epsom salts in case it is lack of Mg, I've been occasionally spraying with dishsoap and neem oil. I've also fed the plants with my comphrey and nettle tea and some seaweed plant food. I haven't over used the feed, maybe once a week gave them a little.


Anybody knows what it is please?

Hello everyone. :) Seems like a nice place full of good advice. I recently started growing some chillies and got hooked. I don't have a big place so not too many plants. I god some (well, only 5) Apache F1 seeds for my birthday back in March and I managed to raise them and 4 are still alive and well. Many pods are set, just waiting for them to ripen a bit more, they are still green. I also have a 1 Thai Demon, 2 Naga Morich and a Black Scorpion Tongue. They all look good although no pods on all of them yet.


Here they are:



Thai Demon



Naga Morich






Apache F1


Three of the Apaches are in the ground and are much smaller than this one which I keep inside. At the moment, I keep all potted plants inside on the window during the night and take them out in the morning before I go to work. I feed them and they seem happy.


Looking forward sharing experience and gaining knowledge from other members.


Cheers! :)
